Alia Bhatt opens up on pay disparity in Bollywood
Alia Bhatt is having a dream run in Bollywood as her last three films have managed to enter the prestigious 100 crore club.
Bhatt has always surprised us with each of her performance.
Be it Highway…
or Udta Punjab…
Alia has managed to hit the bulls eye with each film.
“Being a star kid and just six years old in the industry, Alia has made her mark on her own along with sheer dedication, putting a full stop to the nepotism debate.
Her last release Raazi (a female centric film) has cemented her position in the top league of Bollywood who could carry off an entire film on her shoulders.
Recently the Highway actress opened up the pay disparity in the industry.
Speaking to an interview, she said “Investing money in a film is directly co-related to the people you are bringing to the theatre. I’m not delusional that the same number of viewers who go to watch Varun’s movies will come to see my work. He has a wider reach than me. That’s why I can’t expect that the same amount of money, which is invested in his solo-starrers, is invested in mine, too.”
Alia further added: that she doesn’t want to be arrogant by deciding what she deserves. She believes that her solo-starrers still have a lesser reach than Varun Dhawan’s October, Badlapur and Judwaa 2. (Quote Source: DNA India)
Alia has an interesting lineup of films in her kitty which includes Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, where she plays the love interest of Ranveer Singh for the very first time.
